key to comfort

Today is a very exciting day and well anticipated. The essential guest seating has arrived!

In furnishing this farmhouse, I needed three sofas within the budget but wanted to go new and eco-friendly without sacrificing comfort for esthetics.

Over the years I have remained a loyal advocate of Rowe Furniture, more specifically for their sofas.  They offer a large range of styles, fabrics and finishes at a very reasonable cost.  The turn around time of 4 to 6 weeks is at par with the competition.

I ran my orders through Robert at Abacus Furniture. He is very knowledgeable, patient and efficient. They have a great showroom and amazing sales from time to time.  If you can't make it out there but want a visual sample, you can customize a pre view through Studio Rowe.  Note: they have more available fabrics in house than they offer online.

For the family room, I went with the Nantucket Sofa Bed in a sailor blue cotton stripe.  Fresh, comfortable and easy to clean if need be.

For games and relaxed seating around the fire, I chose the Hartfort sofa and love seat in a multi coloured stripe, again very comfortable and casual with the nonchalance of cottage life.

Now I just have to get muscle and have them delivered!
